Dogs are amazing friends and companions. They are loyal, loving and will always have your back. Saying goodbye to them is never easy, but this Reddit user found the perfect way to see off her long-time friend.
Meeka the dog was 16 years-old when she needed to be put down. It was the right thing to do, she was in pain. So, her friend decided to give her the most perfect treat before saying goodbye.
She had a long and happy life…
And on her last day, her owner gave her a treat she always wanted but could never have: ice cream.
The husky-shepherd mix was a loving companion.
But it was time for her to go play fetch in paradise.
These final moments she spent with her owner were truly special.
After seeing the response on Reddit to her post, CleverFox had something to say back to all of the well-wishings:
Thank you all for the wonderful comments, stories, and comfort you’ve provided. They’ve made me cry, laugh, smile, and wince. I’m so glad I was able to share her last night with all of you, and hopefully that helped you in some way. I also wanted to apologize for making so many of you cry! We often confuse endings with sadness. But, it does not mean it should be a sad/sob story. This is the tale of a happy story – a 16 year old beautiful dog that gave me so many wonderful memories. Now she is able to have a happy end to her life filled with ice cream, instead of discomfort and pain.
My dog’s name is Meeka and she is a husky/german-shepherd mix. She truly is an amazing dog…she use to be able to bark “I love you” and she could escape out of anything you could imagine(even a metal cage)! I feel so blessed to have spent 16 long years with her, but unfortunately it is now her time to run away to paradise. Meeka has forever left a paw print on my heart, and I will always love her.
Dogs are a wonderful gift and loving, loyal companions. CleverFox and all other dog owners out there are lucky to forge the friendships that they have with them. If you have known and loved a dog yourself, share this post in their memory.
